Oh Hi! I am just checking in to give a recap of the last couple of days. It’s been a whirlwind of a week so far and we are already halfway through! I am not complaining at all.
Tuesday I was lucky and got to sleep in a little bit because C had an appointment. I relaxed in bed longer than I normally can and then got up and did this plank workout for the first time. I will definitely be doing this again.
I made myself a delicious healthy breakfast and actually got to sit down and enjoy it without feeling too rushed.
I hit up the gym in the evening and it was a really fun class. It was a smaller class than usual on a Tuesday and we did 3 short 5 minute AMRAPS.
1- plate pushes and wall balls
2- ring jackknives, ankle touches and flutterkicks
3- plate push ups, sit ups and mountain climbers
After we worked on our strict pull ups and I was able to do a few without a band, not strung together but individual ones I did get a few.
When I got home there was a delicious dinner of steak, salad and quinoa with edamame waiting for me thanks to my amazing husband. I am a lucky girl that’s for sure. I was so hungry I didn’t snap a photo. #fail
Wednesday’s workout started with strict press for strength. We worked to find our 3 rep max. I managed to PR my 3 rep max and got three reps at 70 lbs. We didn’t use racks, so that was including a clean. Pretty great right??? We then used that weight for the wod.
10-1 push press
Basically starting with 10 and going down by one each round, and doing the lunges each time. I alternated rounds doing squats and sit ups instead of lunges just to be nicer to my knee and hip. When I heard the workout and saw I was supposed to use 70 lbs I thought there was no way I could do it. I tried and was impressed to see I was able to get into the 5th round before I dropped it. My wrists were killing and really that’s why I had to drop it. I only took off 2.5 lbs per side and did the remainder with 65 lbs. I felt amazing that I was able to get through that much with that weight. Definitely getting stronger. We finished off with some intervals of high knee sprints to get a burst of cardio.
I spent the evening relaxing. C is a little under the weather so we took it easy. I enjoyed my current favourite snack while watching some tv, and placing an online lululemon order.
Now we are almost through the week and it’s a long weekend coming up so life is feeling really good for me despite what’s been a bit of a rough week. Adult problems I guess.
What’s your favourite evening snack?
